Executive Order 341-A
The following is the description from the Department of War's General Order No. 145 of 1905, not the actual order text, which was in the form of an approval of a recommendation from the Acting Secretary of War. Apparently, the land was included in a private patent to Minnie A. Paeske, either previous to the original reservation, or by a later mistake of the Interior Department.
The President of the United States, by Order dated July 15, 1905, placed under the control of the Secretary of the Interior, under the act of July 5, 1884 (23 Stat. L., 103), for disposition as specified in said act or as may be otherwise provided by law, the following-described lands:
- That portion of the military reservation of Fort Bayard, New Mexico, approximately twenty-eight (28) acres, which lies within the limits of the NW. ¼ of SE. ¼ and NE. ¼ of SW ¼ of section 10, township 17 south, range 13 west, New Mexico meridian.
